QuickTime 7.1, Front Row 1.2.2 Released -- Apple improved two of its media-centric products last week. QuickTime 7.1, a 49.1 MB download, delivers "numerous bug fixes," improves H.264 performance, and adds unspecified support for iLife '06. The media playback application Front Row 1.2.2, a 4 MB download, adds song shuffling in playlists, and fixes bugs related to preventing Audible audiobooks from playing, DVD compatibility issues, and more. Software Update has the updates as well, of course, and beware - as always - that QuickTime 7.1 will overwrite QuickTime Pro 6 licenses. [JLC]
Fill in Gaps in Pear Note
If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:
- Open your Pear Note document.
- Hit play.
- Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
- Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
- Take notes on the part you missed.
Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.
